Objective: Osteoarthritis, which is one of the most common causes of pain and motion loss, is an important medical disease that particularly affects elderly people. Unicondylar knee arthroplasty treatment is still a challenge for obese and/or ACL deficient patients. In addition, surgeons face a challenge of deciding whether to perform either fixed or mobile insert design prosthesis. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of fixed or mobile insert design prosthesis on the mid-term results of patients that we followed up for 8 years or more.
